Professor Chronotis's TARDIS was disguised as the living quarters of Professor Chronotis at St. Cedd's College, Cambridge University. It was capable of holding another TARDIS within its force field and creating a bridge between the two to walk through.
This TARDIS was a Type 12, Mark 1 TARDIS, a much earlier version than the Doctor's Type 40, which Chronotis had salvaged from the scrap heap before leaving Gallifrey. It could interfere in an individual's time stream, as Clare Keightley discovered when she reactivated the ship's controls, causing the previously deceased Chronotis to come back to life.

Professor Chronotis' TARDIS had completely different equipment compared to any other TARDIS: It featured no roundels, due to the interior being a library, and it didn't have a control console; instead, its controls were hidden in a bookshelf behind a fake line of books. (WC: Shada)
Behind the scenes Edit
Chronotis' TARDIS was identified as a Type 12, Mark 1 in the novelisation of Shada. Its type wasn't identified in any other version of the story.
